Three Major Schemes for the NEUPC Major Construction Agreement
The first three projects have been awarded from NEUPC’s Major Construction Framework Agreement for North Eastern Universities.
Newcastle University’s Innovation Centre:
The Innovation Centre has been created to accommodate the National Innovation Centres for Ageing and Data. This £32m new build was awarded to Bowmer & Kirkland Ltd. in November 2017 and is due to be completed by October 2019.
Newcastle University’s Claremont Complex:
The Claremont Complex is currently split over three separate neighbouring buildings: the Daysh Building, Claremont Tower and Claremont Bridge. The University is looking to refurbish all three buildings whilst improving connections to deliver one large multi-use building.
This £34m refurbishment scheme was awarded to Sir Robert McAlpine in March 2018. Works are due to start on site in October 2018 and completed by October 2020.
Durham University’s Maths & Computer Sciences Building:
The objective of this project is to provide a new high class, state-of-the-art teaching and learning building for the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Computer Science at the University’s Upper Mountjoy Site. The new building will house teaching accommodation, lecture theatres, seminar rooms, offices, catering facilities, research labs, computer suites, meeting rooms, library, social/breakout spaces and student learning zones.
This £26m new build was awarded to Sir Robert McAlpine in April 2018 and is due to start on site in November 2018 and be completed by September 2020.
